Sony HDR-AX2000E High Definition Flash Media, AVCHD Camcorder

The HDR-AX2000H Handycam camcorder delivers HD broadcast-quality moving images with the convenience of a non-linear recording format. With 24p progressive scan mode, this camcorder's high-quality film-like motion lets you realize brilliant scene reproduction. CinemaTone Gamma and CinemaTone Color provide the HDR-AX2000H with the color and gamma range to give your footage an even more film-like feel. Three 1/3" Exmor CMOS image sensors with Exmor derived technology capture sharp, detailed images even in lower-light situations. The 29.5mm wide-angle to 590mm telephoto Sony G Lens allows for wider angle shooting and brings the action closer. Three built-in neutral density filters and three manual rings provide even more flexibility.

Sony HDR-AX2000Professional (High Definition) Camcorder

Sony's HDR-AX2000 makes for an impressive prosumer-level AVCHD camcorder. While not as decked out as the HXR-NX5U (its NXCAM pro counterpart), it's a clear step up from its HDV predecessor, the HDR-FX1000. The camera's ability to capture HD and SD video in AVCHD and MPEG-2 formats--and save it to solid state media--is only one of the traits distinguishing it from its tape-based forebearer. Full 1920 x 1080 HD video--which can be recorded at 60i, 30p and 24p--is another. The footage is saved to either Memory Stick PRO Duo or SD/SDHC cards, then easily downloaded to computer for editing via USB 2.0 interface. Along with the three 1/3inch CMOS Exmor sensors and 20x 'G' lens from the FX1000 comes a new professional element: audio, in the form of dual XLR ports. This means direct input of balanced, pro-level microphones without the need for an XLR-to-mini adapter. Component, HDMI, and S-Video outputs are also available, allowing for direct connection with analog and digital displays. Another great pro feature is the three control rings around the lens--for iris, focus and zoom--which bring a more reliable, intuitive feel to image adjustment. When you add in 4 built-in neutral density filters, color bars, zebra display, and a live histogram, you've got the perfect camcorder for documentaries, indie features, music videos and other applications where image quality won't be sacrificed for mobility and budget. Film-like Progressive Recording 24p/30p In addition to 1080/60i recording, the HDR-AX2000 offers a 1080/24p and 1080/30p Progressive Scan mode that enables shooting with film-like results. Signals scanned at 24p/30p are converted to 60i (using 2-3 pulldown for 24p) and recorded on MemoryStick PRO Duo or SD/SDHC media. Up to 24Mbps AVCHD Video The HDR-AX2000 can capture video at up to 24Mbps for amazing clarity and detail, ideal for recording on to Blu-ray media since the AVCHD2 codec is highly compatible with the Blu-ray format. Superior Low-light (1.5 LUX) Shooting Capabilities Superior low-light ability with high sensitivity enables clear shooting of subjects in light as low as 1.5 lux (at 1/30 fixed shutter speed with auto iris and auto gain). This allows you to capture sharp detail and brilliant colors even in less than perfect lighting, especially when professional lighting cannot be used. 3x 1/3inch ClearVid CMOS Sensors w/ Exmor Technology The HDR-AX2000 features three 1/3inch ClearVid CMOS Sensors, each having 1,120K total pixels. The 3 independent CMOS sensors each handle one of the color elements - red, green, blue (RGB) - improving the color reproduction of video recordings. Dark scenes can be captured with low noise thanks to inchExmorinch- derived technology that features a column A/D converter and dual noise reduction. Sensor resolution has been optimized and the photosensitive surface area has been maximized thanks to the unique grid arrangement of the photo diode sensors, in which each is rotated by 45 degrees. This model also features the signal processing circuit, the Enhanced Imaging Processor (EIP) which uses Sony's unique image-processing technology. Dual XLR Professional Audio Inputs Professional quality video requires professional quality audio. Featuring dual XLR 3-pin audio jacks, you will be able to provide +48V phantom power to external microphones. Additionally, the grounded connection allows insertion/removal of connectors in live equipment without picking up external signals. Wide Angle G-Lens: 29.5mm to 590mm (20x) The HDR-AX2000 is equipped with a 29.5mm wide-angle inchGinch Lens made from an advanced 10-group, 15-element lens including extra-low dispersion glass, which reduces chromatic aberration caused by light refraction, and produces video with extremely low color fringing. The 20x optical zoom (29.5mm - 590mm: 35mm conversion) takes maximum advantage of the lens performance, so image quality does not suffer even at a zoom ratio of 20x, allowing you to faith
